Fill Your Mobile With Cheap Games (EA "99 Cent" Sale)

No High Scores

Nothing says Easter weekend like getting 99 cent games for your iPhone and iPad devices. Or at least, that’s what EA wants you to think. They also seem to be pulling a bit of a bait and switch on the Android users because the banner page says Android apps are included, but when you go and look at the specific sale list for Android nothing’s marked lower than $1.99. Nice one, guys. Really. Nothing says Jesus risen like LIES!!!

I mock because… well, because I enjoy it. Let’s be honest. Anyway, it’s not a bad list (nor is it particularly impressive), but you might find something there that tickles your fancy. I’ve gone ahead and listed each of the 99 cent titles (and the $1.99 stuff for Android), which aren’t the same across the three platforms:

iPhone/iPod Touch: Liqua Pop, Coconut Dodge, Bop It, Pictureka!, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Swap This!, Reckless Racing, EA Sports MMA, Mirror’s Edge, Monopoly, SimCity, Skate It, The Simpsons Arcade, Spore Creatures, Tiger Woods PGA Tour, Connect 4, Battleship, Surviving High School, Dragon’s Lair, Jewel Quest Mysteries, Monopoly World, Snood, Command & Conquer Red Alert, Spore Origins, Trivial Pursuit, Lemonade Tycoon, Yahtzee Adventures, Boggle, Pandemonium, Sudoku, Star Trek, Dead Space, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

iPad: Max & the Magic Marker, Dead Space, FIFA ’11, Risk, Pictureka!, Clue: Secrets & Spies, Reckless Racing, Madden NFL ’11, Boggle, Command & Conquer Red Alert, Scrabble

Android: Tetris, FIFA ’10 (yes, 10), Worms, Bejweled 2, Monopoly, Life

  1. Whoa, the best two sale games aren’t listed here- Dead Space and NFS: Hot Pursuit. I finally got an iPhone 4 yesterday so…yay!

  2. Short form of my original comment which fell foul of the spam filter:

    Are any of these any good? Also some games on the iPad list should also be on the iPhone list.
